Pumpkin Patch

I went with Joe's class to a pumpkin farm this morning. It was the first chilly day in Michigan this fall. Joe spent most of his time with his pal Audrey. They sat next to each other on the hay ride, they chased the farm animals, and they picked out their pumpkins together. Later today Joe will have his swim class and then we will all go to downtown East Lansing for the annual Pumpkin Walk!

Mom's Memorial Service

We went to Boston this weekend for Mom's memorial service. It was a beautiful service, and a gorgeous weekend. We spent the weekend with family and friends celebrating Mom's long life. Here are some photos that Kamila and I took over the past couple of days. Emma & Joe LOVED spending time with all of their cousins in Boston. And... the Sox won. Mom would have enjoyed the weekend.

Visit with Maria, Norm, Natalie, & Anna

I went to the American Studies Association conference in Philly this past week. Besides the conference, I walked around to local religious sites, took a train to Baltimore to have dinner with Chris and Anna and then back to a suburb of Philly the next day to hang out with Maria and her family. Below our photos of the Dahl family in their fabulous new home!

Joe & Nate

Joe has begun swimming lessons with the MSU Sports Skills program. He is paired with Nate who is a kinesiology major. Every Thursday afternoon they swim together for about 1 hour. There are 25 people ranging from the ages 4 yrs (Joe!) - 59 years coupled with MSU students. This Thursday was the third class and Joe began to swim without a life jacket! He absolutely adores Nate.

Welcome Liam Daniel!

Emma & Joe's newest cousin born today.
